Olivia and Jesse

How We Met

I was a senior in high school when my aunt texted my mom telling her she had a “handsome young man” that I needed to go on a date with. We were both skeptical, but decided to do it anyway. We became friends on social media, exchanged numbers, and went on our first date a week later. The rest is history.

How He Asked

Jesse and I had already been talking about getting married for a few months, and had even gone to look at rings a couple weeks prior. One of his best friends was planning a proposal for his girlfriend, and wanted our help to “set up”…(or so I thought). Jesse planned a fun day for us before meeting up with his friends that evening for the proposal, but I still didn’t suspect a thing. We walked around looking for the perfect spot to spread rose petals in order to prepare for his friend’s proposal. As we were setting up, another one of his friends walked up to us holding their new puppy, and so I went over to say hi and pet it. The puppy’s collar said “Turn Around” I was very confused…but turned around anyway. There was Jesse, down on one knee, asking me to spend forever with him. I was in shock, but of course said YES. Best decision I have ever made.
